NJ Shore Shots Showdown 7th Grade Championship Recap
Eligah Vito Forward (Jersey Jaguars)- Vito is a guard’s size but played the forward positions for the Jags. He finished off some big plays down the stretch that help put the game away. He played a lot stronger than he looked.
Colin Merriman Guard (JKMBA)- The other Colin ran the point for the runner up squad and held his own. He doesn’t look for his shot as much as Farrell but he does effect the game a great deal. He ran the show and tried to find shooters at the correct spot. When his team tried to make a comeback he did pick up the scoring while showing some southpaw touch. He’s a natural leader.
Riley Spitznas Guard (JKMBA)- Riley had things going in the first half. He started out the contest knocking down a few open treys then he used the pump fake to get to the mid-range area. He’s a tough guard that showed that no quit attitude.
Zachariah Hicks Forward (JKMBA)- As JKMBA attempted to make a comeback Hicks nailed a couple of treys to help the effort. He also stepped up on the defensive end and grabbed a couple of steals. He showed quickness on both sides of the ball.
